Narrator: I'm standing here in beautiful Neko Harbour, the temperature today is a balmy 8 degrees and, to me, that seems like a good temperature for a swim.

Entertaining, educational, inspirational ... A beautiful film!
6 July 2010 | by (Ecuador) – See all my reviews

A beautiful film delivering a wealth of information about the effects of global warming while not indulging in the doomsday undertones that so many activists employ to bring attention to the issue. Throughout the documentary, one feels as inspired by its breathtaking cinematography as by its message that we can still make a difference; as the title implies, the film portrays global warming not as an inevitable end for humanity but instead as our species' next great challenge. The raw beauty of Antarctica is presented spectacularly – the viewer is at first humbled by the majesty of the continent's glaciers and then, as those massive bulks shift and creak, begins to feel as if a god were asking us for help. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has an interest in Antarctica and who wants the facts about global warming without the fear-mongering.
